Fact Checking Air Mary on Fox News

In case you missed last night’s Fox News report on the Louisiana Senate race, I wanted to fill you in on some of the whoppers Senator Landrieu tried passing off on viewers. It was more of the same from Landrieu, who’s campaign is struggling under the weight of being an Obama rubber stamp in a state where his failed policies are wildly unpopular.

Here are a few of the more memorable whoppers from Air Mary Landrieu last night.

What she said: “I have been a very strong, and I think effective, voice for the energy industry in the Senate.”

Reality: Mary Landrieu failed to deliver on the Keystone Pipeline, offshore drilling revenue sharing reform, or have any legislation from the energy committee voted on by the full Senate. Instead, the energy industry got rubber stamped activist Obama Administration EPA bureaucrats and harmful, job-killing new EPA regulations.

What she said: “I did everything I could to get a [Keystone] vote on the floor of the Senate.”

Reality: Sen. Landrieu walked away from the Keystone Pipeline bill after it left her committee and even once said that pressing President Obama to approve the pipeline was “not my job.”

What she said: “I believe in the sanctity of life.”

Reality: In the last six years, Mary Landrieu has earned a 0% pro-life rating. Zero percent. She’s had 14 opportunities to prove she actually believes in the sanctity of life and she has not answered the bell once.

What she said: “I would vote for [ObamaCare] again.”

Reality: Nothing to fact check here. Of course she would vote for the job-killing government overreach again, just like she’s voted for President Obama’s failed agenda 97 percent of the time.

What she said: “My home has always been Louisiana.”

Reality: Landrieu lives in a $2.5 million Washington, D.C. mansion and hasn’t lived in Louisiana in 17 years. She goes to bat for her Washington, D.C. neighbors so much, D.C.’s mayor said she is the city’s de facto Senator.

What she said: “We have a lot of clout in Washington.”

Reality: If Mary Landrieu actually had clout, Harry Reid wouldn’t have laughed at the suggestion of bringing the Keystone Pipeline bill to a Senate vote.
